    The Puritan (Folio 3, 1664)


    Enter Nicholas Saint Tantlings, with the Chain.
    Nic. Oh, I have found an excellent advantage to take
    away the Chain, my Master put it off e'en now, to say on
    965a new Doublet, and I sneakt it away by little and little,
    most Puritanically! we shall have good sport anon
    when has mist it, about my Cousin the Conjurer; the world
    shall see I'me an honest man of my word, for now I'me
    going to hang it between Heaven and Earth among the
    970Rosemary branches.
    Exit Nich.
